Description

SECURITY PANEL WITH VIRTUAL SENSORS

BACKGROUND

[00 i ] "The subject matter disclosed herein- relates to security systems, and in particular, to a security panel with virtual sensors.

[0002] An intrusion-fire alarm security system typically includes a security panel that interfaces to a variety of wired and wireless sensors that detect input conditions in its vicinity and send these signals to the security pane! for processing. These sensors are usually located within the premises of the panel. For example, in a household installation, the sensors may include a door sensor, smoke sensors, motion detectors, etc. The sensors provide situational awareness to the security panel in. and around the property which is secured. The reach of these sensors is typically limited, as they provide localized information.

[0003] When third parties desire to develop additional sensors for the security panel, it can be challenging to interface the sensors to the security panel without making modifications to the security panel hardware. Third-party sensor manufacturers may face additional difficulty in developing uniform sensor interfaces, as different security panel mamrfactufes can have proprietary interfaces that are not universally compatible. Accordingly, integration of new sensor designs or modules may be limited and costly.

DET AILED DESCRIPTION

[0014] It is noted that various connections are set forth between elements in the following description and in the drawings (the contents of which are included in this disclosure by way of reference), it is noted that these connections in general and, unless specified otherwise, may be direct or indirect and that this specification is not intended, to be limiting in this respect. In this respect, a coupling between entities may refer to eithe a direct or an indirect comieetioti. [0015] Exemplary embodiments of apparatuses, systems, and methods arc described for a security panel with virtual sensors. In some embodiments, the virtual sensors may be physical sensors that are not directly compatible with an existing physical sensor interface of the security panel. Virtual sensors may also be driven by remote data sources, such as a weather alert system or a dealer system.

{0016] Referring to FIG. 1. an exemplary security system 100 is shown. The security system 100 is shown as including a security panel 102. The security panel 102 interfaces with a plurality of physical sensors 104 to establish a security perimeter 106. The physical sensors 104 may be configured to detect whether an intrusion event occurs with respect to the security perimeter 1 6. For example, the physical sensors 104 may be placed on a wail, a door, a window, or at any other location to establish the security perimeter 106. The physicai sensors 104 may include door, window, motion, smoke, carbon monoxide, and other sensors known in the art. The physicai sensors 1 4 can be coupled by wired or wireless links (e.g., 319 MHz) to the security panel 102. A central station 108 may monitor the security panel 102 remotely and take further actions in response to reported alarms 110.

[0017] In exemplary embodiments,, the security panel 102 includes a virtual sensor application programming interface (API) 1 12 that provides a common interface and acts as an adapter for a variety of virtual sensor sources. The API 1 12 enables assignment of a virtual sensor source as a virtual sensor, where the virtual sensor source can be a physical sensor absent a compatible direct interface to the security panel 102 or a data source provided from a remote location. 'Enrollment of a virtual sensor enables the security panel 102 to recognize and interact with the virtual sensor via the API 1 12 as if the virtual sensor was one of the physicai sensors .104. Enrollment may include registering an identifier for the virtual sensor that is recognized by the security panel 102 such that the virtual sensor can be configured and monitored. Once a virtual sensor source is enrolled, its corresponding virtual, sensor can be recognized as providing a virtual sensor input into the security panel 102. In the example of FIG. 1 , an enrolled virtual sensor source 1 14 is a remote data source 1 16 external to the security perimeter 106 and configured to provide a virtual sensor alert as virtual sensor input 1 18 to a virtual sensor subsystem of the security panel .1 2 through the virtual sensor API 1 12 as a virtual sensor .1 19. The remote data source 116 can be, for example, a weather alert system that delivers critical weather warnings through a network 120, such, as the internet, as the virtual sensor input 1 .1 to be reported as an alarm immediately on the security panel 1 2, A geographic location of the security perimeter 10 or security panel 102 can be used to target weather alerts from the remote data source 1 16, The network 120 may also support enrolling additional virtual sensor sources external to the securit perimeter 106, e.g., internet-based data sources.

[001 8] Another enrolled virtual sensor source 122 may be a third-party source for a physical sensor 124 to add irt or extend tie security perimeter 106, where tie physical sensor 124 is not directly compatible with a sensor subsystem of the security panel 102 to which the physical sensors 104 interface. A third-party receive module 126 may interface with the physical sensor 124 a id present it as a virtual sensor 128 providing virtual sensor input 130 to the virtuai sensor API 1 52. The third-party receive module 126 may also support additional sources 131. through the network 120 and or other sensors (not depicted).

[0019] Another enrolled virtual sensor source 132 may be a dealer system 1.34 that can communicate through a network 136 as a virtual sensor 138 providing virtual sensor input 140 to the virtual sensor API .1 12. A dealer 142 can set a state of the virtual sensor 138 remotely as meeting a virtual alert condition to trigger a virtual alert on the security panel 102. The dealer 142 may also be able to set virtual alerts for other virtual sensors, such as virtual sensor 1 1.9.

[0020] FIG. 2 is a schematic block diagram ilksstr tiiig a portion of the security system 1 0 of FIG. 1 in accordance with an embodiment A security panel processin system 202 of the security panel 102 includes a sensor subsystem 204 configured, to receive sensor input 206 from the physical sensors 104. The security panel processing system 202 also includes a virtual sensor subsystem 208 configured to receive virtual sensor input from enrolled virtual sensor sources as virtual sensors, such as virtuai sensor input 140 from the enrolled virtual sensor source 1.32 as virtual sensor 1.38 through network 136. In the example of FIG. 2, the dealer system 134 is the enrolled virtuai sensor source 132, where the dealer 142 can set a state of the virtual sensor 138. The virtual sensor API 1 52 of the virtual sensor subsystem 208 receives the virtual sensor input 140 and can perform a protocol or formatting adjustment to provide virtual sensor input 210 to the sensor subsystem 204 in a compatible protocol/format.

[0021 j A monitoring subsystem 212 of the security panel processing system 202 is coupled to the sensor subsystem 204. The monitoring subsystem 252 is configured to provide an alert 214 based on detection of an alert condition associated with at least one of the physical sensors 104 and to provide the alert 214 based on detection of a virtual alert condition associated with the virtual sensor 138. The alert 214 can be provided to a user interface 2.1 to generate a visual and/or audio alarm to an installer or user 218. The alert 214 may also or alternatively be pro vided to the central sta tion 108 of FIG. .1. [0022] In exemplar embodiments, the virtual sensor subsystem 208 provides genera! sensor management service like adding, removing and controlling the state of sensors etc. The dealer 142 can perform sensor activities for the virtual sensors, such as getting a list of sensors, adding a sensor, removing a sensor, or setting a sensor's state. Once a virtuai sensor, such as virtual sensor .138 is added and configured to the security panel 102, the dealer 142 can set the state of the virtual sensor remotely, thus triggering an alarm alert at the security pane! 102.

£0023] FIG. 3 illustrates a sequence diagram 300 in accordance with one or more embodiments. At action 302, an authenticated authorized party, such as the dealer 142, requests addition, of a virtuai sensor corresponding to a condition, to be monitored/alerted, and the security panel 102 receives the request to add the virtuai sensor. The security panel 102 enrolls a virtual sensor source through the virtual sensor subsystem 208 of FIG. 2, where the enrolled virtual sensor source is configured to provide a virtuai sensor input of the virtual sensor. Upon adding the virtual sensor, the security panel 102 can respond with an acknowledgement. At action 304, the dealer 142 can initiate configuration of the virtual sensor to establish or modify a virtual, aler condition, as well as other configurable settings.

[0024] The security panel 102 initiates monitoring of the virtual sensor in addition to monitoring of the physical sensors 1 4 of FIGS. I and 2 through the sensor subsystem 204 o FIG. 2 that establishes the security perimeter 1.06 of FIG. 1 , At action 306, the dealer 1 2, at any time, can get. a list of sensors configured tor the security panei 102, which may include both virtual, and physical sensors At action 308, the dealer 142 can set the state of the virtual sensor to an active state, indicating a virtuai alert condition. At action 310, the security panel 102 detects the state change of the virtuai sensor as meeting the virtual alert condition based on a remotely issued command from the deaicr 142 at action 308, and outputs an alert to the user interface 216 of FIG. 2. The alert can be an alarm or a warning message in audio and/or visual forms. The user 218 can acknowledge the alert through the user interface 216 of FIG. 2, which is communicated back to the dealer 1.42, The adding of virtuai sensors, configuring of virtual sensors, setting virtual sensor states, and triggering of alerts can target individual instances of the security panel 1.02 and/or groups of security panels 102.

[0025 ] As a further action 312, the dealer .142 can remove a virtuai sensor from one or more security panels 102 remotely. When operating on a group or set of security panels 102, each of the security panels 102 can remove a virtuai sensor based on receiving a removal, request at the security panel 102 identifying the virtual sensor, which may be initiated remotely without the dealer 1 2 being physically present at each security panel 1 2, [0026] FIG. 4 illustrates an example of a user interlace 400 for adding a virtual sensor in accordance with one or more embodiments. The example user mterface 400 is an example of an interactive displa that (na be rendered on the user interface 216 of FIG. 2. Accordingly, an installer or user 21 can add hardware, enter an identifier, request learning of an associated radio frequency for a sensor, and edit settings for virtual sensors, similar to the physical sensors 104 of FIGS. 1 and 2. The virtual sensor API 1 12 of FIGS, I and 2 provides a transparent interface such that installation of a virtual sensor is substantially similar to installation of the physical sensors 104 of FIGS. 1 and 2 from a user and/or installer perspective,

[0027] FIG. 5 illustrates an example of a remotely triggered alert 500 via a virtual sensor in accordance with one or more embodiments. In this example, the virtual sensor may he the virtual sensor 1 1 of FIG. 1 , where a weather service is the remote data source 1 1 of FIG, 1 that provides remotely detected information resulting in the remotely triggered alert 500 to the security panel 102 of FIGS. 1 -3. The virtual sensor input 118 of FIG. 1 may include metadata 502 to display on the user interface 216 of FIG. 2 as additional details associated with the alert The metadata 502 can include location specific information, instructions, and/or other inibrniation.
